CLEMSON, SC–Clemson senior Devrin Carr won in both singles and doubles competition Saturday to lead the Lady Tigers to a 5-4 victory over Indiana at the Hoke Sloan Tennis Center. The win increased Clemson’s record to 2-0 under new coach Nancy Harris.

Clemson also had singles wins from Stefanie Woerz, Catherine Galvin and Kate-Maree Mair. For Galvin, it was her 10th singles win of the season against just five losses.

Indiana’s Correne Stout won at the number-one singles with a 6-4, 1-6, 7-5 win over Clemson’s Etresia Kruger. That was the only three-set match of the competition.
